I’ve been attending Science Fiction and other genre conventions for about 20 years. For half of that time, I’ve been engulfed in photography as a hobby. I am constantly striving to improve my work, but I will agree that the quality of my photos are pretty good. You can learn the technical stuff in school and through research. Yes, you should understand the rule of thirds and a bit of color theory, but one thing that will improve your photography is to make a connection with your model.

The Long Island Portrait Photography Workshop is held by a group of photographers who meet to develop and improve our portraiture photography knowledge and skills. Each meeting is an opportunity to work collaboratively on posing, lighting, composition, setup, exposure, as well as post processing techniques.
We’re always looking for individuals who would like great portraits of themselves in exchange for their modelling time. While we love working with professional models, we also want to work with people without the experience. You don’t need any modelling experience to come down to our events.
For more information, or to RSVP I can be contacted through the group email at email@example.com
As a photographer who runs a regular portrait workshop, I frequently have to send high resolution photos to multiple models. The images can exceed 10 megabytes each. Since some email services have limits of how much space the attachments can take up, I generally try to keep below 20 MB per email. If I have to send out 30 images, this could require up to 30 individual emails. This is why I use Google Drive to send the emails. There’s also quite a few additional services that allow you to share large files. I’ll list them at the end of this post, but I wanted to share how I use Google Drive to send models downloadable galleries of their images.
